Actual Stitching Progress

Click now for JiffNotes

Now there's something you haven't seen in a while! This is the needlebook from Ye Shall Prosper, from...er...last year's ASG. I'm doing it as a Stitch-A-Long with Jill, Teresa, Jean, Judy and some others. This is actually the October goal, which I did not finish in October, but I worked on it in October, so it's all OK. I changed the top stitch on the "dictionary" from Broad Chain (I figure I'm going to be doing enough of that since all the smalls in the set are assembled using it) to Williamsburg. I also added my second initial, since there was space (Rae only had her first initial to the left of the acorn). I had to move my initial down, and now things look a wee bit off center, but oh well! The wiggly things on the right side are the buttonhole bar loops for the ribbon tie to go through. Yeah, not my best stitch.

And here we have 1/3 of a happy dance! This is one side of a 3-sided "bon bon" ornament from Wee Works. And I even started the second side!
